I am not sure what exactly draws me to them so strongly, but I have had a love affair going with wine barrel chandeliers for some time now.
Ironic, since I don't drink...
They are just the perfect amount of rustic texture and generally the scale really adds a lot of interest and weight to a room. That's important when you prefer monochromatic schemes in white and grey like me.
Long before I even found Lexington, I bought a wine barrel chandelier and plopped it down in the basement knowing that soon enough I would have a project worthy of it! And now that Lexington is in full swing I am so happy I did because I scored it for $170 and I doubt I will find another at that price in my lifetime.
And Lexington will be the perfect home for it.
